Case Study: NCR Saves Substantial PCI Project Costs by Using Outsourcing and Tokenization
Wilmington, DE (Vocus) May 22, 2010
Gartner, Inc., the world's leading information technology research and advisory company, recently released a case study that describes how a $5 billion global firm saved millions of dollars in Payment Card Industry-related costs and months of internal development time by outsourcing its international card payment operations to Electronic Payment Exchange (EPX).
EPX, a full-service payment processor that provides card data tokenization, enables organizations to comply with just a few questions on the PCI Self-Assessment Questionnaire A, rather than having to comply with the complete set of more than 200 questions required for firms that accept and store credit card data in their systems.
EPX Chief Executive Officer Ray Moyer welcomes the Gartner case study and believes it shows EPX’s dedication to assisting merchants in achieving PCI compliance. “While some organizations are busy generating hype for newly invented, unproven tokenization solutions, EPX has been busy actually implementing our tokenization solutions,” said Moyer. “2010 marks the tenth year that EPX has been issuing tokens for every transaction response. Our proven approach, coupled with our EPX BuyerWall platform, enables us to help merchants reach their PCI compliance requirements faster, with greater security, and with less merchant expense.”
